So you're going to see less of me now...

As some of you already know, I am now a student again and this means I pretty much just gave up my free time. Specifically, it is all going into a Geography degree at Camosun College, with the eventual plan for a Masters in Urban Planning, hopefully at McGill University in Montreal.

What does this mean for Ubuntu?

I plan on giving up some of things I do for Ubuntu. I will remain on the CC and will help out with Marketing Team when I can.

So what do you need people to help you out with?

  • Leadership of Ubuntu Canada
  • Admining the following mailing lists: ubuntu-users, ubuntu-devel-discuss, and ubuntu-directory

If you want to help me with any of these, please mail me

Some resources are already accounted for:

  • The ubuntu-news and ubuntu-marketing mailing will be run by those capable and awesome UWN people, Martin Albisetti and Nick Ali.
  • The ubuntu.ca (or ubuntu-ca.org) website will land in the capable hands of my brother, Brian Burger (although he doesn't know this yet). And yes, I know it is down, my router powercycled and I lost my IP.

In general, my response time will probably get even worse (if that is possible) and I will likely not be on IRC much.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
